Forest & Sandridge About Us

Prayer

Prayer is a central part of our Christian distinctiveness at school. Children are taught about what prayer is and given opportunities each day to engage in collective prayer, reflection and silent prayer and their own personal prayer if they choose to. Children often choose to pause and offer a prayer in their class reflection areas or our central school prayer area.


Our School Prayer

Dear Lord

Help us in this school to be patient, loving and kind.

Help us to think of others and not hurt them by the things we say or do.

Help us always to tell the truth and do what we know is right.

Amen.


The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom,
the power and the glory are yours.
Now and for ever.

Amen.
